RAG RUG Christmas Wreath & Decoration Workshop
Saturday 1st December 10:30am – 3:30pm | Venue: ReTweed Shop
Explore your inner artist through textiles in this entirely enjoyable and immersive workshop.
This is an easy ‘no sew’ workshop utilising the most diverse array of fabric scraps to create a wonderful and entirely original Christmas Wreath and Decoration. Spend a day amongst colour and creative fun. Who knew torn up old rags could create stunning and entirely original Christmas wreaths and decorations.
At ReTweed we don’t like to throw anything away so this craft is just up our upcycling street. Come along to this workshop and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to create something delightful for your home.
Retweed Workshops are all partly funded by LEADER.
Spend a day learning with a Rag Rug guru
Margaret Kenny, is a Textiles Historian and a very passionate rag rugger. She will demonstrate the traditional techniques of hooking and podging strips of fabric through hessian backing to make rugs, wall hangings and seat mats. During the workshop, Margaret will also share the history and heritage of rag rugging in Britain and introduce specific techniques and patterns associated with the local area.
Cost: Including the materials – AND you will take home your beautiful creations!
Refreshments and cake included!
If you want to bring a bit of fabric from your own life – an old shirt, an item of children’s clothing – or some furnishing with sentimental attachment but past its best and cut it up to incorporate into your craft masterpiece – then feel free.
